Asian Cities Chess Team Championships – Dubai Cup 19 – 27 Oct 2013
Team Singapore, represented by Tin Jingyao (13 years old), Ashvin Sivakumar, William Woong and Lee Qing Aun (all 12 years old) was the youngest team at the recently concluded Asian Cities Chess Team Championship in Tagaytay City Philippines. The team performed creditably defeating 3 teams that were rated much higher than them ie Abu Dhabi (UAE), BS Begawan (Brunei) and Erdenet (Mongolia) and drawing with Kuwait. The team suffered heavy defeats to Manila (Philippines), made up of 2 GMs, 1 IM and 1 WFM, and Wuxi (China) led by GM Wei Yi (rating 2580) but earned their opponents respect with their gutsy performances. The team displayed great camaraderie – learning, playing and growing together. For more details please see the reflections of the team manager.
